Long Description:
Bulwer Island Light, also known as Bulwer Island Range Rear Light, is an inactive lighthouse that used to be located on Bulwer Island, in the city of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In 1983 it was moved to the Queensland Maritime Museum in Brisbane.

History
The station was established in 1909. The current light was lit in 1912, as the rear light of a pair of leading lights at the mouth of Brisbane River. Made of hardwood frame clad with corrugated iron, it was the eight and last of its kind to be constructed, the first seven being Little Sea Hill Light, Grassy Hill Light, Goods Island Light, Bay Rock Light, Old Caloundra Head Light, North Point Hummock Light (demolished) and Gatcombe Head Light (demolished). In 1983 the lighthouse was replaced by a skeletal tower, and relocated to the Queensland Maritime Museum. The original location is now occupied by an oil refinery.

The tower went through restoration in 2005, replacing timber and rotted windowsills. The ground level cover was also painted, and access was improved.

Visiting
The Queensland Maritime Museum is located on the southern bank of the Brisbane River just south of the South Bank Parklands precinct of Brisbane, and close to the Goodwill Bridge. The museum is open daily and the ground level of the lighthouse is open to visitors.
